Ahhh, is it that obvious?
After a bit of introspection, I think it probably comes down to being an extension of that sad, slightly anally retentive thing boys have going when it comes to lists, charts, rankings, '100 best/worst ever' and...well, anything trivia related basically.
Music, football, films, TV, I'm just the same. And I'll readily admit, worst than most (Stato is my middle name!).
Problem is, it just gets a bit more personal when you're one of the stats in the list.
But as is always the case when women comment on the boys and lists thing, Amelia is totally right. So I shall learn my lesson and let it lie.
